Student rents are reviewed annually in a process of dialogue between the Students’ Association President and the Director of Residential and Business Services.

Following these discussions, it has been agreed that accommodation costs will be increased by 7.5% for the academic year 2024-2025. 

UK RPI (all items) which is the main measure we use to set the rents, was at the time of setting the rents in September 2023 8.5%. To support this below RPI increase, RBS has been asked to consider some changes to services.  

Housekeeping arrangements in traditional halls will change from September 2024, staff will clean shared bathrooms and kitchens (unless they are part of a flat) as well as corridors and other public areas. Bedrooms will not be cleaned and students will be responsible for disposing of rubbish and recycling.  In line with ensuite accommodation, monthly cleanliness and safety checks will be carried out.

Some students would prefer the option to rent their accommodation based on a self-catered contract. This will continue to be possible for all accommodation at David Russell Hall and Fife Park Apartments (1685 beds). All students will have the option of 1) the catering package at the time of accepting their offer 2) to go fully self-catered, 3) cater on a pay-as-you-go meal card option.

The University will continue to support students with the cost-of-living crisis by increasing the accommodation award available to those students who may need that financial support.

Ben Stuart - RBS Director
Barry Will - President of the Students' Association
